Awards & Post-Race Celebration
The top 3 male & female runner awards will be presented on-site at 7:30PM at the Clubhouse.
After the race, runners will finish at the Clubhouse where Fairways BBQ & Grill will be open, offering several specials including BBQ, mac & cheese, tomato soup, and more. There are 7 beers on tap & other canned beer and wine available for purchase as well. Stick around for the awards & great food!
The walker-friendly course will start on Clubhouse Way just before Fort Eustis Boulevard and head towards the front gate of Newport News Park on Constitution Way, make the turn-around, and repeat the course heading back towards the start area, finishing at the Clubhouse. This allows participants a chance to enjoy the Celebration in Lights going both directions on the course!
Strollers are allowed on the Glowing Gobbler course.
Without great volunteers, the Glowing Gobbler 5K would not be able to run smoothly.
